Lively place for a more lively dinner. Great place to meet people if you're travelling alone. Right on the main road, with good music, and shisha on sofas.

Much better food here than at hotel flower garden which is ranked higher on trip advisor strangely. Fresh, flavourful well cooked meat kebabs with a HUGE plate of salad, chips, dips and pitta to accompany it. On holiday we often eat late breakfast then one main meal at 3/4pm- this place is perfect in that respect as portions are huge.... More

I was lured into this place by the hummus wrap posted on the white board, however, it was rather average. We walked in and sat down. After 10-15 minutes, the server finally came over to greet us and take our order. Food: I ordered the hummus wrap and my husband order the "tuna melt." Both of our wraps should have... More

Pink elephant offer an exciting and different range from the other restaurants in the town. Many are Middle Eastern based - Kebabs, Houmus, Pitta bread but their Sri Lankan dishes and specials are just as tasty.

This place is so laid back. It is staffed by guys who nearly seem to be hanging out rather than working (in a positive way). The food is fantastic, the drinks are delicious and the guys working there are so accommodating. Coconut drinks are literally cut from the plant in front of you, the food is served piping hot, in...

Its bare basic, you cant expect too much from the place, but it has excellent staff, good music played all the time, ideal location - just opposite the beach. Really nice friendly atmosphere. Everyone - staff and guests are friendly

Visited this bar/restaurant on recommendations from here and can't fault it. Visited late Saturday afternoon. Found a relaxed atmosphere, including a couple asleep on a day bed in the corner. Music was soulful house. Staff were friendly and attentive. Food (we had Middle Eastern style shish kebabs) was tasty, quick and offered a huge plate. Coffee good. We left as... More

we loved the moroccan change with this place. Not on the beach front but great cocktails and really good food! Lots to choose from and a good mixture of local and further afield cuisines

Service is very slow but this is very normal for sri lanka, our group was very big so most places we went on our trip they were not very well prepared or stocked. The sri lankans are much slower in their approach to life than we are in the UK so it was not a problem just something to bare... More

A good choice of food with Arabian / Moroccan aspects alongside Sri Lankan favourites. Generous helpings and full of flavour.
